ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Derek Carr has had a conversation already with draft classmate Johnny Manziel, who is currently out of the NFL, and the Oakland Raiders quarterback described the interaction as two friends connecting.Carr told MMQB.com over the weekend that he wanted to reach out to the troubled Manziel, and Manziel tweeted Carr that he would take him up on the offer.Its been good; he obviously took good to it, Carr said Wednesday. He reached out, and I reached back out to him. Anything I can do to help him. I think hes extremely talented. People get drafted in the first round for a reason. He can run, throw. Hes very a creative, dynamic player. Obviously, he just got in a little trouble and well see.Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner, was selected No. 22 overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 draft, while Carr went to Oakland as the fourth pick of the second round, No. 36 overall. Carr has thrived and evolved into an NFL MVP candidate with the Raiders, but Manziel was cut by the Browns in March and has served a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy, which is still under review of the leagues domestic violence policy. That violation could lead to a six-game suspension.I dont know where its going to go, Carr said of his renewed relationship with Manziel. Theres no plan or anything like that. Thats just me being me. Im just trying to help a friend out to be honest.Carr was also asked what advice hed already imparted on Manziel.Id leave that between us, Carr said. I wouldnt put anybody elses business out there either. I just keep it between us. Anything I can do to help, Im here for him.Adidas Schoenen Korting . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. Adidas Outlet Belgie . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now.

Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal. Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review? Why was this overturned? James Veaudry Pembroke, ON -- Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned?

There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season.FRISCO, Texas -- Two teams on the opposite end of the Western Conference standings meet at American Airlines Center on Thursday evening as the Los Angeles Kings visit the Dallas Stars.Currently one of five winless teams in the NHL, Los Angeles (0-3-0) dropped a 6-3 decision at the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.The Kings have scored just six goals, tying them for second-fewest in the league through three games.Veteran center Anze Kopitar has a good idea why Los Angeles has yet to crack the win column.Obviously, we have to check better, and everything that they (the opposition) get, its mostly off our mistakes, and we cant afford that, Kopitar said after the loss in Minnesota. Teams are good, if you do (make) mistakes, theyre going to punish you for that.Dallas (2-1-0) returns home after splitting a two-game road trip. The Stars dropped their first road game of the season, 6-5 at Colorado on Saturday, before edging Nashville 2-1 at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday.Through three games, the Stars have two players tied for the team lead in goals with two apiece. Perennial NHL All-Star center Tyler Seguin is no surprise but hes accompanied by veteran forward Adam Cracknell, who has gotten an opportunity to play because fellow veteran Ales Hemsky has been sidelined with a groin injury.My play is the result of our guys playing well, Cracknell told the Stars official website after practice on Wednesday. Were all playing as a unit. I think were buying into the system right now. Were getting rewarded, which is nice.Stars coach Lindy Ruff said on Wednesday that Hemsky, who has been skating, will not play Thursday and neither will fellow forward Jiri Hudler (flu). Ruff said Hudlers illness is so severe right now that the Stars want him to stay away from the team facility to avoid infecting any of his teammates until his condittion improves.ddddddddddddJohnny Oduya also missed practice on Wednesday, but Ruff said the veteran defensemans absence was due to a maintenance day.After starting the season last week with a 4-2 win against Anaheim, Dallas will be playing its second home game of the season on Thursday.And even though the Stars are coming off their most complete game of the season Tuesday in Music City, Ruff still wants to see more.Weve still got work to do, Ruff said. We got to clean up our special teams. Our power plays got to become quicker. Our 5-on-5 play became a lot quicker, now our power plays got to become quicker.One reason why the Kings have struggled to start the season is because they have been without top goaltender Jonathan Quick, a former Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the MVP of the 2012 playoffs. Quick sustained a lower-body injury in the first period of their season opener last Wednesday.Quick is expected to miss between three and four months, leaving goaltending duties to be divided between Jeff Zatkoff and veteran Peter Budaj. The latter was recently recalled from the minors to serve as Zatkoffs backup.Zatkoff is 0-3-0 with a 4.37 goals-against-average and an .839 save percentage, numbers which are a far cry from those posted by Quick.But Kings coach Darryl Sutter knows his goaltending situation is out of his hands and all he can do is hope for the best.Theres nothing you can do about it. Theres not one thing, Sutter said after the loss in Minnesota. I said it when Jonathan got hurt. Theres not one thing that I can do about it or anybody can do about it, right? You expect the guys that are in there to play as well as they can, and if they play as well as they can, thats good. ' ' '
